Candy Cane Box

Can you believe that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away?  Maybe I should start shopping!  I hope Santa got my list.  What does everyone one want this year?
Well it's that time of the week we all wait for.... Thursday.  And you know what that means.  It's time for the next Dare To Be Sassy Thursday Challenge (#207 It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas (make a Christmas project)) at Sassy Studio Designs.  I decided to make something other than a card this time.

I made a Box

with the lid off

Here's what I started with.
cake mix box and the side of a brownie mix box (lid) 
I covered the box  and lid with opaque white paper
I used toilet paper tubes for the rings 
I sliced them and wound them tighter to fit the candy cane stick

I used rubber cement to apply the white paper to the box and lid.  And to apply the green card stock and DP to the rings.  The rings are glued to the box with E-6000. (great stuff)  I popped up the image on homemade pink foam squares.  

It was fun making this project. It's always fun to make something other than a card every once in a while.  I also made this.

Now I guess it's time to get shopping.  Where did I put everyone's lists?  Oh well, I guess everyone gets underwear and socks. hahaha

Thanx for looking and please comment.
